What Are You Stitching?
20th December 2019
With Christmas just a few short days away, we thought it the perfect time to share a little seasonal stitching…
‘I belong to the Hawkes Bay Embroiderers’ Guild in New Zealand. Each November our group make a Christmas decoration. This year Judy, who is one of our members, found a felt angel on the internet which we decided to use as our decoration.’
‘I decided the wings were a little small in the original pattern and so used the pattern from Fairy Dreams from Inspirations issue #98, enlarging it 50%. They were such fun to stitch. I originally made them to give as presents, but so far have only parted with one – maybe I’ll be ready to part with them next year?!’
Carolyn, not only do we love your Guild’s tradition of completing a Christmas ornament each year, but we think this year’s ornaments are just divine and aren’t surprised to hear you’re not ready to part with them… just yet anyway!
‘Christmas projects completed! These have been stitched by a small group of ladies who meet at a local embroidery shop near York in the UK. All the stitchers are very pleased with results!’
Shirley, you should all absolutely be pleased with the results as your versions of Christmas Bouquet and Mistletoe Bell are picture perfect! We look forward to seeing what project you put your needles and threads to next.
We were hoping to share some more seasonal stitching with you, but alas the stitching stocking is empty! If you’ve created something with needle and thread that celebrates Christmas, we’d love to see it. Email photos of what you’ve created that celebrates the festive season along with a few details about your stitching journey to firstname.lastname@example.org
